Contains greatly improved graphics, more detailed ship models as well as an overhauled user interface with mouse and keyboard support.

Fred “HeinKill” Williams from SimHQ has reviewed Atlantic Fleet and took some time to interview Nils Duecker, the lead artist for the game.
Atlantic Fleet scored a 9/10 and Fred had the following to say: “This impressive game costs about the same as a fast food meal, but offers you a three course dinner you won’t tire of.”
“And honestly, I am simply gobsmacked that this level of detail is even included in a 10 USD iOS title.”
